Pontefract, Ossett and Kippax pick up Yorkshire In Bloom awards
GREEN-fingered volunteers in Kippax and Pontefract are celebrating fresh success in a year that has confirmed their areas as blooming lovely places to live.
Kippax in Bloom was named winner of the urban communities category in 2018’s Yorkshire in Bloom competition.
The announcement came just weeks after Kippax took the title of best-dressed village on the route of this year’s Tour de Yorkshire cycle race.
Kippax in Bloom co-ordinator Pat Samy said: “We are absolutely delighted – we have a really dedicated team of people and it’s teamwork that has got us this award.”
